An innovative education concept

This trip offers young people who have recently graduated or completed their studies an opportunity for an unique experience abroad before entering professional life: Subject to a few conditions, they propose their own job assignment and organize their stay in a foreign country. This travel is intended to expand young peoples' horizons and familiarize them with other cultures and ways of life.
